Message from Writer

Hello! I am the fabulous writer known only as -~+Charlotte+~-
I have made some pretty good quotes in my life, so here:
"The world is made of glass and the right words can shatter it to millions"
"Love is not a game but a game board. Play your pieces as you wish."
"I write because i need to release things i cannot bear to show"
"if you stuff your mouth with memories there'll be no room for words"
(that one kinda sucks)
in case you can't tell i made all those up on the spot.
I post everything I write because sometimes there's gold among the dirt
any old-timer can tell you that
<3
love is love
don't be stupid
stay safe
stay real

As the days
blow by
like
dust
in the wind,
we refuse
to tumble
with it

we try
to make
every 
day 
memorable

or we'll
forget 
the date

thirsty
thursdays
make a drink
any drink
orange juice
and cranberries
my big
big
big
big sister
said

I stare
and watch
and hope
that one
day 
I'll
make
my
own
drink

I hope
it will
give me
hope

I've been
the strong
one every
single day
and I need
a drink
to help me
stay strong

my walls are
crumbling
and this 
poem sucks
but who
cares
it will
never even
get posted


or will it?







it's thursday
pass me a
drink
Idk this sucks but it's a true story. Yeah this is gonna dissappear soon, sorry i'm just not confident enough to keep it up

    Please don't delete this piece...it's beautiful!
    Replying- You don't need to be sorry. Can we be friends again? You're not true friend if you haven't fought. So let's consider it a proof of our friendship? I'd love to read your pieces.......Please keep writing!

    You weren't harsh at all! Thank you! I totally understand, which is why I've been trying to subtly shift into longer and longer lines. I dunno if it's working, but eventually I'll get there. Thanks so much for the critique!

    Yo, this is chrysanthemums&ink from the post you commented on. So here I am, commenting on one of your 'bad' poems. I would give a review but my brain is totally fried, and it wouldn't be much help anyways. After browsing your published works, I'd say that I like your writing style. It's short and sweet and relatable. Honestly, it's kinda hard for your everyday WtW writer to gain recognition, so that doesn't mean your poems are bad at all. They're just flying under the radar.
    Some feedback if you'll have me: sometimes the short lines and stanzas make the words read a little choppy since a lot of readers put breath marks in between lines. I think it's a little hard to read, but I can't speak for anyone else.
    Please tell me if I've offended you or said any wrong assumptions. I'm pretty new to reviewing and things like that, so I'm a bit harsh.
    You've gotten yourself a new follower! Keep writing!
